I didn't realize there are Windows/Linux versions of 1.4.2_19 and older,
I just looked at the later 1.4.2 versions and they are availabe for
Solaris only.  I may try to get the Linux version working on my machine.

You may want to use https instead.

We know Ant builds with 1.4 - we have a CI build that verifies build and
test there.

But if I create a release using, say, OpenJDK 1.6 it is possible javac
resolves some method invocations to methods that are present in Java6
but not in 1.4.  This is why the release process of Ant has been a
staged process so far where you start with the lowest JDK needed to
support, then compile the remaining classes with the next higher version
and so on until you reach the highest version required by an optional
task or type.
